Storyline

Of all the toys arising from the 20th century, there has never been one like Lego bricks. This film covers the history of this product of Denmark and how it arose from a toy company with an owning family that refused to let either hard times or multiple fiery disasters get them down. Furthermore, we also explore the various aficionados of the product like the collectors, hobbyists, artists, architects, engineers, scientists and doctors who have found uses for this classic construction toy that go far beyond children's playtime.

I loved 'THE LEGO MOVIE'!

'A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

A documentary film, on the beloved construction toy 'Lego'. It was directed by Kief Davidson and Daniel Junge; the duo also wrote the movie, along with Davis Coombe (all three filmmakers have experience with multiple other documentary flicks). Actor Jason Bateman narrates the film. I found the movie to be just a little too boring, and uninteresting; Lego fanatics will probably love it though.

Lego is a plastic construction toy; that began in Denmark, in 1949. Since then it's became one of the most popular toys around the world. The juggernaut has spawned multiple cartoons, video games, movies and six amusement parks as well. This documentary examines it's history, over the last 66 years; and why so many people have became so obsessed with it.

The film has plenty of great, informative, info (on the subject), I guess. It's just not told in a very entertaining way; and if you're not a huge fan of Lego, it's not that interesting either. I have multiple brothers, and friends, that really love the toy though (a lot); and they'd probably really enjoy this film. Not many others will though. Even Jason Bateman narrating, as the voice of a Lego figurine, couldn't save it for me; and I love Jason Bateman. I love 'THE LEGO MOVIE' though!
